Alternative Transportation Fund

The Montpelier Alternative Transportation Fund (ATF) is dedicated to alternative transportation projects that serve or promote transportation modes for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders. It is funded by 5% of the City’s annual parking revenue. The Montpelier Infrastructure Transportation Committee (MTIC) is charged with selecting suitable projects to meet the ATF's purpose. The purpose of this application is to bring projects to the attention of the MTIC for funding.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. The MTIC will assess each application and score the project based upon the criteria in the scoring rubric. All projects will be reviewed for potential compliance with all federal, state and local regulations, including the Americans with Disabilities Act. Applications that are more complete and specific will assist the MTIC in their determination.

Project evaluation and selection will take place at MTIC meetings, which are open to the public. Applicants are expected to support the project throughout the process by providing additional information and support to city staff. Project proponents are encouraged to attend and will be given the opportunity to speak. See city website for MTIC agendas. Smaller projects can be funded after review. Larger projects requiring approval by the City Council will not be approved until after the Fall budgeting period. If funding is approved, the project will be scheduled for implementation. Denied applications can be re-submitted with additional information.
